My Feedback on Embird Embroidery Software
I bought the upgrade from 20/21 to 22. The buy was oke paying was easy with creditcard. I uses the digitise almost every day, yesterday the program crashed and i could do notting anymore. The outline was changed to a little picture in the left corner it was not possible to change the pattern any way not bigger or smaller notting. I could not delete it or change it. I deleted the whole program and installed again, it work fine for now and i hope that the problem is over now. I had no trouble before the upgrade, i was so dissapointed in the program and i uses it sins 2010. I say to all my embroider friends to buy the program, now i think its a mistake

I upgraded from 2021 to 2022 but because of Christmas have not had much time to use it yet but have been happy with this program for years, which is why I keep upgrading.
My Feedback on Embird Embroidery Software
Thank you. Yes I am getting used to the Embird upgrade and as I get more familiar with it I enjoy it more. At first it was a bit slow to respond, especially from Manager to Editor. I do also have a new PC laptop so that is also something I have to get used to. I will keep in touch . Sincerely
My Feedback on Embird Embroidery Software
The upgrade does work better with my PES files. I wish I could use BX files in Embird, though.
My Feedback on Embird Embroidery Software
Totally awesome software. Thank you!!!
My Feedback on Embird Embroidery Software
Never a problem with updates. I am not computer savy, but had no problem installing these updates. Only problem I have is eliminating stuff I don't need or use which slows down the system. Aloha,

Perfect as always. I love embird, digitize and old and new sfumato. I'm satisfied. Regards

My Feedback on Embird Embroidery Software
I really don't use Embird very much, but am very happy with it for what I use it for. If I've ever needed assistance, I would just e-mail and I would get it. Now that I'm retired, hopefully I will learn how to do more with it.
My Feedback on Embird Embroidery Software
I love Embird...I haven't done the latest update because I know there are a few bugs, like not being able to use the delete button on the computer. In general your product has served me very well over the last 10 years and I recommend it to all that ask me how I do my embroidery, lettering and digitizing. SOOOO Thank you and Merry Christmas!

My Feedback on Embird Embroidery Software
I still cannot get into my updated 2022 Embird, It asks for a pin, or does not recognize that I have paid for the upgrade. Very frustrating and cannot download anything new.
My Feedback on Embird Embroidery Software
I have not used Embird very much but it appears to be working properly. Thank you.

My Feedback on Embird Embroidery Software
Thank you very much, sorry I am late in replying to you but had some problems with my computer and had to have the hard drive replaced. I did forget to tell the person to save my Embird that I had already loaded and now would like to know if it is OK to download it again. The instructions you sent were easy to follow and had no problems . Thanks Again and you did just fine and your reply was quick .
My Feedback on Embird Embroidery Software
Hi, I do have feedback to give. I honestly was disappointed upgrading the 2018 to the 2021. I don't see much of anything new that is practical to me. When I read what the upgrades were, it seemed to be mostly fixing bugs, which I wouldn't think we should have to pay for. It doesn't help me at all when you add new machines or formats. I know it helps some people, but honestly I couldn't find one thing new that I will use. I don't use cloud, or anything like that. I just use simple things. I was hoping that there would be something new with the digitizing, or the sfumato, but I didn't see anything that I could tell was much different. All the other upgrades usually had something new to play with. I could be missing something, but I just like simple things easy to do. But you still have the most affordable program that I've seen. Thank you for for asking.
My Feedback on Embird Embroidery Software
Great program and great customer service! Thank you.
My Feedback on Embird Embroidery Software

My Feedback on Embird Embroidery Software
Great, was easier to install and very quickly done. Love the program and have been using it fot a long time. Thank you
My Feedback on Embird Embroidery Software
Everything is working well thanks.
My Feedback on Embird Embroidery Software
I have used your EmBird software since I began to machine embroider. It is an essential tool that everyone should have. It is easy to use. If I have a question, you can answer it for me. Upgrading is simple. Directions for easy re-install after a computer crash is easy as well. I cannot recommend your product, EmBird and the add ons, enough. Thank you,
My Feedback on Embird Embroidery Software
Great! Thanks for all the help you provided and timely responses to all my questions. The program is working well.
My Feedback on Embird Embroidery Software
Very good service, quick to correct satisfyingly misunderstandings. Good software relatively easy to learn with some worthwhile effort.
My Feedback on Embird Embroidery Software
Have not been able to register my Iconizer, keeps telling me # is wrong
My Feedback on Embird Embroidery Software
Terrible. Not very nice at all
My Feedback on Embird Embroidery Software
I love Embird!! I can see more clearly what my design should look like!! I can convert the thread colours into the thread I use and get the colour in the design if I like it! I can change the pattern in certain areas if I so choose. The thing that I didn't appreciate in this upgrade was I had to put in my information and register it again at least 5 times!! I still don't understand why my registration was not accepted the first time, but the last couple of times I have gone into Embird, it has worked without me having to re-register it!! Again, I love the program. Thank you!! Sincerely,
My Feedback on Embird Embroidery Software
Hi, Everything went great. I am very happy with the newer version. Regards
My Feedback on Embird Embroidery Software
The upgrade from 2017 to 2021 went smoothly. It's always a little scary when upgrading, but I had a friend present and between the both of us, and some instructions from a person who knows Embird very well, we did OK. I don't really see much in the way of new features from 2017 to 2021, though. But at least I am now up to date for a few years to come.
My Feedback on Embird Embroidery Software
Nice software, very helpful

As always, it was a very easy task. I really enjoy my Embird. I mainly stitch for family and friends, so Embird totally meets my needs. Thanks for an amazing product!
My Feedback on Embird Embroidery Software
I have been disappointed with the software. Its user interface and performance is not what I had expected. I will not be using it.

Hi Balarad ! Alles bestens, das Programm lauft super. herzlichen Dank fur die Nachfrage ! mit freundlichem Gruss ߍ
My Feedback on Embird Embroidery Software
I love Studio Next graphics end, but would like the buttons and words to be a little smaller , my screen is 1920 x 1080. I realise the help portion will improve as time goes on, so my request for improvement of the help does not really count. As a digitiser, I am really impressed.
My Feedback on Embird Embroidery Software
It all went fine,.......Love Embird, It's the best. Byeeeeee
My Feedback on Embird Embroidery Software
Although I have not used the new version many times it has certainly satisfied me in so far as it recognizes my Janome embroidery machine. I will definitely continue to use it. I have been using your software since about 2012 and have found it definitely meets my needs.
My Feedback on Embird Embroidery Software
Worked great. Thanks
My Feedback on Embird Embroidery Software
I was having some problems when I contacted Embird. My questions were answered and I was helped with the upgrade to 2022. With a couple of emails, the steps were fairly easy to follow. I love the program and it?s capabilities. Makes embroidering easy!
My Feedback on Embird Embroidery Software
It took me a while to figure out how to use the new studio (tester) but all went smoothly, been with embird for a long time still learning. I have looked at other software they seem simpler but I don't think I will switch I really like your work area it is awesome. Thank you for always upgrading your program and keeping it affordable.
My Feedback on Embird Embroidery Software

My Feedback on Embird Embroidery Software
I appreciate your product. Find your website easy to use but importantly always get such quick responses to questions Thank you
My Feedback on Embird Embroidery Software
hello, I am very happy that I bought the 2022 update (I had the 2019 version). I see real progress even if I haven't discovered everything yet. I work on Mac (OS High Sierra and Parrallels, Windows 7: everything is stable. The beta version of Studio seems to me much faster for Sfumato and I appreciate that. The slowness of the previous Sfumato tool had me to continue to use version 2.0 of Sfumato, which I still use, so please don't delete it! (I do very large formats ...) Thank you very much for your work !
